More High Quality Apprenticeships

As the only degree level apprentice in the House of Commons Gillian is championing more high-quality apprenticeships.

Gillian started working life at 16 on an apprenticeship scheme with Delco Electronics, a subsidiary of General Motors Group, in Kirby near Liverpool. She spent these early years moving around the company, whilst also studying for a Business Studies degree at Liverpool John Moores University. Gillian's experience of a comprehensive and wide ranging apprenticeship provided her with a foundation of skills and knowledge that helped continue a 27 year long business career.

In Parliament Gillian is the Vice-Chair of the APPG for apprenticeships, providing a forum for parliamentarians and employers to discuss how to promote the role of high quality apprenticeships, such as the one Gillian experienced.  There is a focus on how to ensure that apprenticeships serve as a pathway to a career, and how the apprenticeship model can meet the changing skill demands from businesses.
